Drew Barrymore had a surprisingly sweet response on Thursday. music and lyrics co-star Hugh Grant’s criticism of her singing voice. She simply performed part of the movie’s big song, the catchy “Way Back Into Love,” missed notes and all, using a hairbrush as a microphone.

“Oh, Hugh…bert. Hubert,” she said, before singing again, “That’s for youuuuuuu.”

Earlier in the week, Grant had called the actress and talk show host’s voice “just horrendous.”

It happened during an interview with cablingwhen the next star Dungeons and Dragons: Honor Among Thieves she was asked if she had sung her own in the 2007 romantic comedy, in which Grant plays a failed pop star who teams up with Barrymore to write a catchy pop song for a celebrity reminiscent of Britney Spears (played by Haley Bennett). The song they came up with is the catchy “Way Back Into Love” which was actually written by the late Adam Schlesinger. In fact, a version of the tune on the official soundtrack is credited to Grant and Barrymore.

“Yeah, well I got it, but I’m self-adjusted beyond belief,” said Grant, who was sitting next to his co-stars Chris Pine and Michelle Rodriguez. “Actually, that’s not true, I’m a little self-adjusted, but not as much as some. Drew Barrymore was in that movie with me and I don’t think he’d mind me saying his singing is horrible.”

With a laugh, he added: “I’ve heard dogs bark better than she sings.”


“But having said that, once they tuned her in, she sounded so much better than me,” Grant said, “because she has heart and voice and rock ‘n’ roll, whereas I sounded like Julie Andrews and I’m meant to be rock.” “. and roll”.

The two were shown last year, when he appeared in The Drew Barrymore Show, who have remained friends since their movie hit theaters. And it turns out that her first interaction was when she reached out to him during, as he put it, “the dark days of my Divine Brown scandal.”

“You will always have a place in my heart,” Grant told her.

The host then mentioned that Grant is “sort of a curmudgeon,” which is exactly what he appeared to be on the Oscars red carpet Sunday, when he had a painfully awkward interview with model Ashley Graham, due to her refusal to answer his questions. questions with more than a few words. Graham’s own response, which she gave to TMZ cameras, was: “You know what? My mom told me to kill people with kindness. So there you have it.”
